About a month back I brewed a normal strength hefe with wb-06 and it had a lot citrus which is fading right now and the banana is shining through. A little aging might clean up the citrus.

I tasted this one again last night and the citrus flavor has faded and the banana has become more pronounced. It tastes even closer to the Dry Dock Hefeweizen. Maybe it is peaking.
